"Zulu" (Nicknames: Zu, Zuluzuluzulu, Zuru, Duru, Zazu, Such the Handsome, Small Brown Dog, Zu-Dog, Ridgie Man, Zuba Duba, Puppa Zu, or just Puppa.)
Where did Zulu's name come from? Zulu's name is a play on words. In the U.S. Navy, Bravo Zulu is slang for "job well done." So, he is Kundu's job well done. Bravo is also Italian for "well done." So, Bravo Zulu is also "Well done, Zulu!" In addition, the Zulu are a tribe native to southern Africa, where the Ridgeback originated.
